Tree Planting Days
Now more than ever we all appreciate an opportunity to get together and spend quality time building and developing relationships. Green Belt provide an opportunity to spend this time in the outdoors, getting down and dirty and physically planting trees! Join our tree planting crews on an active planting site and learn the lifecycle of Irish forestry, plant a few native trees and have lots of fun.
Green Belt is Ireland's leading forestry management company. We plant more trees each year than anyone else in Ireland and we are very keen to develop the understanding of a forestry and woodland lifecycle to everyone. On our tree planting days, you will be directed to an active planting site and there you will meet some of the team from Green Belt, including the local forestry professional and the tree planting teams.
We will guide you though the tree planting process so you know how to plant a young tree successfully. We will tell you how we help it grow and the steps we take to protect the environment around the woodland, including watercourses and wildlife. You will see first hand the really positive impact forests have on the landscape, on a community, in the life of the forest owner and also in the provision of local and rural employment for years to come.
A GREAT DAY OUT
The tree planting day is run over a 3 hour period, from 10am to 3pm. We try and keep the sites within 1 hour of your specified departure location. Green Belt will provide trees and some spades - but a lot of the fun is getting your hands dirty. We strongly suggest you bring your own wellies and weather proof gear - it is Ireland after all.

There will be plenty of time for a chat, fun and a few pics. The best planter gets a prize, of course - and what happens the worst one??? Regardless of your tree planting skills, all participants get a certificate of completion! We can provide sandwiches and refreshments for the end of the event (this can be requested on the booking form) and we try to include local food companies for these. You also get a souvenir of the day, of a sustainable, GOTS certified, organic cotton T-Shirt (see image and order form below). Contact Maurice Ryan on 087 6753097 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
